Former French Finance Minister Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been bouncing around residences since he was first released from Rikers Island on $1 million bail. Now it seems he’s finally settled in a 3-story, 6,800-square-foot palace at 153 Franklin Street, between Varick and Hudson streets, in Tribeca. Kahn moved into the $14 million home last night and enjoyed $200 steaks from Tribeca eatery Landmarc with his wife, journalist Anne Sinclair, according to the New York Daily News.

The 27-foot-wide townhouse, which recently drew the attention of Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz, was once the site of a firehouse and is on the market for $13.9 million. It was also listed for rent for $50,000 a month. It boasts a spa, private theater, rainfall steam showers and a wet bar.

“He must be really suffering in there,” said neighbor Annette Goodman. “It’s the height of hypocrisy. House arrest does not mean a luxury townhouse.”

“I’m sure he will love the place,” said the property’s architect, Leopoldo Rosati. Property owner, Michael Marvisi, declined to comment.

Once considered a front-runner to challenge French President Nicolas Sarkozy in the country’s upcoming election, Strauss-Kahn is due back in court June 6 and is facing up to 25 years in prison. [NYDN]
